What do teachers say about this resource? (1837)

Excellent resource, well designed tasks with lots to think about... There is a student and teacher version which makes it simple to track... Plenty of opportunity for stretch and challenge... It helps the students to be more independent in their studies. This resources encourages critical thought and the different tasks ensure it does not get repetitive... It has suggested answers to the questions. Other resources don't do this and it makes assessing the work tricky... It saves huge amounts of time on planning, allowing you to focus on more content. This works brilliantly as either homework or more extended project based work.

It is really well-done. The content dealt with is incredibly enriching and it certainly helps students develop knowledge and connections upon the novel being worked..

I loved the way in which the context is referred to. There are interesting approaches to several contexts, such as the WW and feminism.

It will motivate students to develop awareness of the importance of the context in Atwood's novel. Its literary approach also helps students develop comprehension towards the message transmitted by the author.

This is just what we have been looking for. Although this is a text we have taught before, resources linked to the new A-level were scarce and many have release dates too far in the future for them to be useful to us in our planning. This is ideal for both experienced teachers and those new to the novel.

Generally helpful – it will certainly help stimulate ideas for the teacher.
